Centralia Historic Marker Project
Centralia (1910-1922), located only a few miles north of Weeki Wachee, was once a thriving, but short-lived logging town and sawmill, which had a significant impact upon Hernando County’s past.
The Historic Hernando Preservation Society has actively sought to recognize significant historic sites in Hernando County by the installation of historic markers through the Florida Division of Historical Resources Historic Marker Program.
For this reason, the Historic Hernando Preservation Society wants to raise the necessary funds to place a State Historical Marker to remember Centralia. The goal is to raise a total of $2,000. Thus far (October 2016), they have raised $500. Sponsors who donate $500 or more will have their name placed on the marker.
You can make a donation and help in this effort to remember CENTRALIA, at the Historic Hernando Preservation Society website.
